The area was known as Hitachi- Fuchū, or simply as “Fuchū” for most of history and developed as a castle town during the Edo period for Hitachi-Fuchū Domain. The domain was renamed “Ishioka Domain” in 1869. With the establishment of the municipalities system on April 1, 1889 after the Meiji restoration, the town of Ishio was created. Much of the town was destroyed in a fire of March 14, 1929. Ishioka was raised to city status on February 11, 1954. The new city annexed the neighboring villages of Mi and Sekigawa on December 1, 1954. On October 1, 2005, the town of Yasato (from Niihari District) was merged into Ishioka.
